9/14/13 ** I think I set a recent record in how long it took me to finish this book! It kept getting preempted by books that I needed to read for school, or for an author event (Bitter Kingdom
by Rae Carson & Deception
by C.J. Redwine), or a book due at the library (Zealot
), etc. Well, now I discover that I have to wait 5 MONTHS for the 3rd book to come out! Sometimes I swear that I'm not starting new series until all have been released!
Marissa Meyer did an excellent job maintaining the motifs of the established fairy tales, while weaving them together in a compelling, futuristic world. Great female leads, princesses no less, with far more than the latest hunk on their minds.
Keep them coming.
